Light the Way – Walk for Independence

Resize text

We are excited to announce that Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind will host its 6th Annual Light the Way – Walk for Independence on Sunday, October 9th, 2016. This year’s event will occur on the National Mall!

Coinciding with National Disability Employment Awareness Month, this year’s Light the Way fundraising event will provide participants with a morning of fun-filled exercise, camaraderie and entertainment. Join Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind (CLB) and walk the scenic, historic, and accessible route between the US Capitol and the Washington Monument. Bring your pets and picnic blankets – go ahead and make a day of it!

Interested participants will also have the opportunity to guide walkers who are blind or visually impaired. Leading this guiding experience will be CLB’s ambassador, triathlete Charlie Plaskon, who is visually impaired. Come walk with Charlie Plaskon, Board Member Shawn Callaway, and hundreds more of the CLB community to support an organization that has supported, trained and employed individuals who are blind or have vision loss for the last 116 years.

Proceeds from this year’s Light the Way fundraising event will help CLB to remain a strong community resource for residents in the Washington metropolitan area for years to come. Join us on the National Mall as we walk for the independence of those individuals with vision loss.

Register online to donate, walk, or create a team!
